How do you avoid the large hordes of the undead?

Intelligent planning of your escape route is essential. Being quick and intelligent is your best tool when navigating to your ultimate survival. Fear and panic are your worst enemies, so learn to conquer that and keep your eyes on the mountain and LIVE!

What happens if you lose all of your life lines?

Don’t worry yet. Find your nearest vaccination station where a staff member will give you an additional life line. If you cross the finish with no life lines, you will join the ranks of the undead.

Do you need to bring money or are credit cards accepted?

Cash is recommended for purchases on race day. Credit cards are for online registration only.

Are teams allowed?

Most definitely! It will help your chances of survival and team work is another key to survival.

What should I bring if I am staying in a cabin or camping the night on site?

For all cabins you should bring your own linen. If you forget your linens, do not worry, we have some available for a small fee in the store. The basic cabins are like a wooden tent and you will need to bring your own cooking materials and utensils, etc. There are deluxe cabins and cabanas available that will have more features. The location is mainly a camping resort so the usual camping equipment is needed.

When is the survivor’s party?

Saturday, September 16th from 10am to 1:00pm.

How old can I be to race?

Any age. However if you are 13 and under on the date of September 16 2017 you must sign up for the Junior Run.

If you are under 18 what do you need to bring to run?

A waiver must be signed by a parent or legal guardian that must contain the name of a person who can be contacted in case of any emergency.

What if you get hurt?

Staff will be on location to administer any first aid needed and get you back into the race if that is possible. If you cannot continue the race, unfortunately we cannot refund your entry fee. In the case where staff cannot administer the necessary first aid, you may opt to be taken to the nearest hospital. If you do go to the hospital, this decision is up to you and any and all costs that result.

If I cannot make the run can we transfer our ticket to someone else?

Yes, as long as the runner meets all requirements of the race, including their age and the runner has the printed ticket with a confirmation email granting them the right to use the ticket. Also, the new runner must complete a waiver at registration.

What obstacles will there be?

The Zombie Escape course will be made up of obstacles that are unique to our event. They will go from easy to harder and muddier as you progress through the course. The idea is that everyone has a great time so no obstacle is impossible to do.

You will find out the day of the event but be prepared to run, climb, crawl and escape hordes of zombies. Your very fate is in your hands.

I am not in the best shape, can I participate?

Yes, definitely, this is a fun event and “non-competitive.” You can walk and rest as needed any time and there will be hydration locations. You can bypass any obstacle you feel you cannot do. Consult a physician prior to the race if you are not sure. Note: The first Heat is competitive!
